Trivia

The episode title is a nod to the widely-used phrase "drinking the Kool-Aid," which refers generally to the act of buying wholeheartedly into a belief, preference, or idea, and specifically to the 1978 Jonestown cult suicides in Guyana, in which cult leader Jim Jones poisoned (or convinced to self-poison) over 900 of his followers with a mixture of grape Flavor Aid, Valium, chloral hydrate, and probably cyanide.

Goofs

At the funeral, Veronica is wearing a black coat that buttons right below the neck, but after hurrying back to her father's office, she's wearing a standard double breasted, black pea-coat. She would have had no time to change coats. See more »
